Denarius Moore visiting with Bengals

AP

The Bengals haven’t stopped looking for wide receiver help now that Brandon Tate is back in the fold.

Adam Caplan of ESPN reports that Denarius Moore is visiting with the team on Thursday. Moore, who spent the last four years with the Raiders, visited with the Jets last month.

Moore was a regular starter for the Raiders during his first three years in the league, but saw his playing time drop during the 2014 season. He had 12 catches for 115 yards in 10 appearances with Oakland last year.

Speed has been Moore’s calling card at the professional level, which would make him a contender to provide Cincinnati with a deep threat if he winds up agreeing to a deal with the Bengals. That’s a role that Tate has played at times during his four years with the Bengals, which could lead to a competition between the two veterans for a roster spot leading up to next season.

  1. I really liked this guy his first few seasons in Oakland. Not sure what happened last year but its not fair to expect anyone to succeed on the Raiders. Dude could be a monster in the right system. He has something you can’t teach: blazing speed

  2. Shame. At the beginng of his career he mad a lot of plays and looked like he could have a bright future. Big case of the drops and was in the doghouse

    Shame

  3. Let’s see – he was lazy, ran poor routes, dropped balls and seemed generally disinterested last season. WR is a need in Oaktown right now so the fact they’re not interested in him should tell you what you need to know.

    And judging from the venom billswillnevermove keeps spewing I suppose the beating the Bills took from the Raiders last season must still sting. Bills were the ones looking up at the Raiders at the end of that game.

  4. Puzzled why the Ravens haven’t already signed Moore.

    He’ll drop some, can’t run patterns real well, not interested in blocking; He is Tory Smith without the huge contract.

  5. H was a play-maker for Hue Jackson for two seasons and from every receiver position. Then, under Dennis Allen/Ted Gilmore, suddenly he’s lazy and can’t run routes? Not buying it.

  6. Hue jackson (offensive coordinator)was there in oakland a few years back and must think he can get this guys career going.

  7. 12 catches on a team where the #1 WR struggled to get 666 yds last year is not a ringing endorsement.

  8. I recall a lot of young talent. He looked the part. Doesn’t seem too shocking that Oakland’s staff managed to coach him down instead of up. My Eagles should take a flier on him. More upside than Miles Austin and his tender hammies.

  9. His complete undoing was in the Patriots game where he let the game sealing INT bounce off his alligator arms in the red zone. Carr would never trust this guy again.

    Well, if your coming from the Raiders only thing to do is look up. He could find a better team in the CFL.

  12. Wouldn’t mind the Bears taking a flyer on him since they lack that stretch the field receiver. Then again this years draft is deep at WR – id like them to spend a mid rounder and focus the first two rounds on defense.

  13. DHB was a field stretcher also. Until teams knew better. Speed doesn’t mean anything if you can’t catch. If there is a 1 in 4 chance he catches a deep ball even if he’s wide open he is not a threat.

  14. He’ll drop some, can’t run patterns real well, not interested in blocking; He is Tory Smith without the huge contract.

    No. Smith has much more talent.
